Whole wheat Tortillas

Yummy, yummy, yummy......

I love tortillas!

Doesn't everyone?!?!

So maybe I'm just weird. Oh well it doesn't matter I am still going to love them!

We eat a lot of them and I have always just bought them. When you read the labels of them there are so much added to them even the "All Natural" ones. 

I always thought there was no way I could make them. I kept hearing all of these people saying how hard they were to make. 

But I decided one day when I opened the frig and I was going to make tacos and guess what was not in there? No tortillas. ... 

So I go to the World Wide Web and looked up recipes. So I found one and it was ok so next time around I used it as a guide and here it is for you to try. 

Whole wheat tortillas

3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 water (give or take)

In a bowl stir together flour, sea salt and baking powder. Now cut in coconut oil (do not melt). 

Now you add your water at about a half cup at a time and stir. Then knead it until smooth. You may need to add more or less water. 

Next you will need to separate it into 14 - 16  balls. 

Then you will roll them out very thin. You will need to play around with this because sometimes I like them really thin for tacos but thicker for other things. 

I am not really good at that part. Mine do not always end up a nice little circle but it does get better with practice. 

Next you cook them on a griddle or castiron pan. I have used both and they both work well. You need to cook them on each side for about 30-45 seconds or until kinda bubbly. Be careful not to cook them for to long they will become hard and that's no fun. 

And there you have it. 

God Bless,
